One of its first victims was Pontian, who with Hippolytus was banished to the unhealthy island of Sardinia.
Pope Fabian (236-50) had the remains of Pontian and Hippolytus brought to Rome at a later date and Pontian was buried on 13 August in the papal crypt of the Catacomb of Callistus.

When he became pope in 198 or 199, Zephyrinus made Callistus (or Calixtus) effectively his "chief minister" and eventually a deacon or archdeacon, with such major responsibilities as the Christian cemeteries and perhaps the organization of the Roman parish, or titular, churches.
